To say 2020 has been a bad year for the foodservice and hospitality industry would be an understatement. With increased restrictions and fewer people dining out, it has been difficult for many restaurants and event venues to stay afloat in this uncertain time.
Small business owners—we feel for you. Our hearts go out to everyone affected by the current health and economic crisis. Coming from a once-small business, and having operated a small family restaurant, Martin’s understands how hard it can be. We want to let you know we’re praying for you during this difficult time.
At the same time, we have seen amazing resiliency, tenacity, and ingenuity by many in the foodservice community! Restaurants across the country are innovating and finding new ways to reach their customers (from mail order meal kits to pop-ups)—and we are proud and elated to hear those success stories.
Food-lovers and restaurant-goers: local restaurants need your support! Check with the restaurants you typically frequent to see if they have take-out or delivery options or alternate ways to enjoy their food. Look for ways you might offer support.
